Lassen’s Painted Dunes from Cinder Cone

Lassen's Painted Dunes from Cinder Cone

On our way out of Lassen a couple weeks ago we decided to head to a different corner of the park to hike Cinder Cone. While Lassen’s more known areas weren’t crowded on a weekday in September, Butte Lake and Cinder Cone were pretty much deserted. The hike up Cinder Cone wasn’t that long, but the extreme winds and shifting, rocky surface made for an exhausting climb. However, the effort was well worth the views at the top.

The lake in this photo is Snag Lake with Ash Butte to the left of it. As the rays of sunlight moved from the lake to dance over the Painted Dunes the scene was truly spectacular.

Waterfall Wednesday

Bruarfoss (Iceland)

Bruarfoss may be the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen. Sure, there are plenty of longer and/or wider falls. Bruarfoss doesn’t even show up on most top ten lists for Iceland’s waterfalls, but two things made Bruarfoss extra special.

The first is (obviously) the color. I haven’t photoshopped this photo. Those blue and turquoise colors are what you actually see when the sun is out. The second is I was the only one there. Hard to believe, given the beauty of this place, but I was there before 10 in the morning, and this waterfall is hard to find.

Some new houses have been built in the area making access difficult. The Google maps location was incorrect (but maybe that has been fixed?). I walked quite a distance before finding it. I never did find the Bruarfoss Waterfall Access Bridge, and photos on the internet indicate the bridge has been closed. Good luck!
